Abstract

We investigate the dynamics of a one-dimensional oscillator made of a mass connected to a circular spring under uniaxial extension. The functional dependence of the elastic energy on the strain is obtained by solving the differential equations resulting from a variational formalism common to Euler's elastica problem. The calculated nonlinear force agrees with the experiment, confirming the anharmonic nature of the oscillator.
